After nearly 50 years of subscription to "Private Eye" I am at last featured on page 24 of the current edition (#1288) as a world exclusive.
Sadly, the headline is incorrect and I am seeking a super-super injunction in Gozo Magistrates Court.
Please don't mention this to anyone. :mrgreen:

Dave managed to get into Pedant's Corner a while back for pointing out that peanuts aren't nuts - they're legumes.

We also subscribe to Private Eye and it's a real thrill to be mentioned as a contributor. I'm looking forward to the arrival of the next one and seeing your name in print, Chris.

Sadly not as you imagine but a bit of fun. Anyway, I mustn't talk about it - unless it gets raised in the House of Commons.
